Comforting Hands

The Bright Side Family is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide affordable housing, affordable assisted living, and support services that respond to the changing needs and preferences of older adults in ways that offer choice, promote dignity, ensure safety, and advance economic security. 


Everything we do is guided by our belief that having a safe and comfortable home environment is a fundamental right, that income should not dictate access to supportive care, health care, or social services, and that community is created by honoring one another’s individuality, dignity, privacy, and autonomy.
